Some quick notes.....
HAPPY NEW YEAR! (almost)
2022 USA swimming registrations As noted earlier in the month I have submitted USA swim registrations for all swimmers currently practicing with the team. If we submitted your USA swim registration between Sept 1st and now, and you had not already been charged, be aware you will be charged. Our treasurer has to do 100+ of these one by one, so if you do not see it on tonight's automated billing, it will be coming soon.
January Calendar is not completely finalized yet. I should have it up some time tomorrow. But , as many of you are aware, the Kroc center pool is shut down next week - they are re-plastering the pool. Please bear with us as this is a very rare occurence. So below is the special schedule for next week January 3-8 during the Kroc pool shutdown:
Monday - no practices except for our 2 all-star swimmers Emma and Tilly who will be practicing with another team
Tuesay - group ABC 5:00 - 7:15 Granite Hills with MRA group D 5:30-7:15 at granite hills with MRA
Wednesday: all practices at Monte Vista HS ABC 345-6:00; D 4:20 -6:00; FG 6:00 - 7:00; HI 6:00 - 6:45
Thur: and Friday: all practices at Helix HS ABC 3:45 - 5:30 D 4:20 - 6:00 FG 5:30 - 6:30; HI 5:30 - 6:15
Saturday am: ABCD TBA
Beginning on Monday the 10th we should be back to our "normal" schedule at the Kroc center - assuming the Kroc replastering goes as planned.
12&U meet - January 15-16: The LSC local swim committee fell behind on getting meets out for Jan-Mar.....They are now listed on our website under CAST events. Due to the current makeup of our team I didn't want to take on hosting a meet. However, no team bid on the Jan. 15-16 12&U meet, and with the Junior Olympics in early February, it was a meet that NEEDED to happen. As of the 28th of December still no host and the very real possibility that no 11-12's in San Diego would have a january meet or another shot at qualifying for JO's. So, I bit the bullet and told them we would host it.
It will be at Helix HS. It's been over two years since we've hosted a meet, so we're going to need a lot of volunteers to step up and help, many of you were not on the team the last time we hosted...it's okay, most jobs need little or no training. I will be posting a jobs sign up list before the end of this weekend. Please be prepared to pitch in and help, more info will come to you soon. I know we can pull it off with flying colors!
If you have a 12&U swimmer on the team, we intend to have your child swim in this meet. You will still have to go online on the events page and commit. If you have prior commitments and you and your swimmer cannot attend, please go online and decline so we know one way or another. What a fun weekend of bonding to get all of our 12&U's at one meet, and our parents working together to put on a great event......more news soon.
